Such a sad time of the year when college football is over and there is only 7 games left in the NFL. I was sad to see Buffalo get knocked out by the officials, sorry I mean the Jaguars. A question that comes to mind is will Big Ben blow the Jags away or do the Jags have his number. I guess we will find out this week. I did not have a good start with my best bets last week but did with my regular plays I hope to turn that around this week. Below are my final regular season stats along with my current playoff stats.

 

2017 SEASON FINAL STATS

BEST BETS              32-25-3 ATS and 40-18-2 SU

REGULAR PLAYS  38-35-2 ATS and 44-30-1 SU

 

2018 PLAYOFF STATS

BEST BETS    1-2 ATS  and 1-2 SU        

REGULAR PLAYS  2-1 ATS and 2-1 SU

 

BEST BETS

My FIRST BEST BET is on the MINNESOTA VIKINGS at home giving the New Orleans Saints 4 points. Minnesota just had 2 weeks off while the Saints played a very emotional game against the Panthers last week. I tend to side with the more rested team in the playoffs especially when I think they are the better team to begin with. I heard the Vikings brought up Sam Bradford off the IR for the playoffs just in case. He is of course the qb for the Vikes that beat the Saints early in the year 29-19. I like the Vikes at home and rested and I am making them MY FIRST BEST BET.

 

My NEXT BEST BET is on the PHILADELPHIA EAGLES at home getting 3 points from the Atlanta Falcons. The first thing I thought when I saw this line is WHAT?? the Eagles at home are getting points from the Falcons. I know how much Wentz meant to this team but making them an underdog at home WOW, I know that would infuriate me so I can only imagine how it has affected the Eagles. I know the Falcons have been playing very well lately but going into this contest as favorites blows my mind. I may be dead wrong on this one but I like the Eagles here as my NEXT BEST BET.

 

 

My LAST BEST BET is on the NEW ORLEANS SAINTS/MINNESOTA VIKINGS  game to go OVER 45. The last time these teams played they scored 48 points between them and now because it's a playoff game they lower the O/U by a field goal? I still think both these teams will score more than 45 points between them as I don't see either team changing their game plan and I think both will attack with the weapons they have. I don't think this game will go into the 60s but it will definitely go into the 50s. So I am making the OVER 45 my LAST BEST BET

 
 
 
 
REGULAR PLAYS

I like the Jacksonville Jaguars/Pittsburgh Steelers  game to go Under 41.

I like the New England Patrios at home giving 13 points to the Tennessee Titans.

And finally I like the Pittsburgh Steelers at home giving the Jacksonville Jaguars 7 points. 

 

 

I will be back next week with my picks on the Conference games.

 

 

And as always  - Remember to bet with your head and not over it.

So here we are Wildcard weekend in the NFL. These 4 games pose some interesting questions, like is McCoy going to be able to contribute 100% to the Bills offense, is Mariota going to throw more INTs than TDs, were the last 2 games by the Jags what the Jags really are and finally are the Rams going to be able to knockoff the defending NFC champions. I hope I have read enough about these 8 teams to come up with a few best bets and regular plays. So without further adieu below are my picks for this wildcard weekend. I reposted my end of the regular season stats because I am very proud of them as I keep the playoff stats separate.

 

2017 SEASON FINAL STATS

BEST BETS              32-25-3 ATS and 40-18-2 SU

REGULAR PLAYS  38-35-2 ATS and 44-30-1 SU

 

2018 PLAYOFF STATS

BEST BETS              

REGULAR PLAYS  

 

BEST BETS

My FIRST BEST BET is on the CAROLINA PANTHERS/NEW ORLEANS SAINTS game to go OVER 47. Both games this year these 2 teams have played the Saints have scored more than 30 points and I for one do not see that changing in this game. I also believe that the Saints won't keep the Panthers off the scoreboard so I like the over in this game a lot.  I am making the over my FIRST BEST BET.

 

My NEXT BEST BET is on the ATLANTA FALCONS/LOS ANGELES RAMS game to go OVER 48. The last game these 2 played this year on 12/16 the total was 56, and once again I don't see any reaon why that won't happen again. Also the last 5 games the Rams played all went over the total. Last year in the playoffs the Falcons games totaled 56 and 63 so they do not play conservative. I like the over and it is my NEXT BEST BET.

 

My LAST BEST BET is on the KANSAS CITY CHIEFS at home giving 7 points to the Tennessee Titans. This seems like a lot of points to give the Titans but the Chiefs are home and come into the game on a 4 game winning streak while the Titans have only won 1 out of the last 4 games. I like Mariota but he has thrown more INTs(15) this year than TDs(13) while Alex Smith has thrown 26 TDs with only 5 picks. The Chiefs are home where they are 6-2 and in my opinion they also have the better coach in Andy Reid. So I am making the Chiefs my LAST BEST BET

 
 
 
 
REGULAR PLAYS

I like the Atlanta Falcons on the road getting 5 1/2 points from the Los Angeles Rams.

I like the Buffalo Bills on the road getting 9 points from the Jacksonville Jaguars.

And finally I like the New Orleans Saints at home giving the Carolina Panthers 6 points. 

 

 

I will be back very late Sunday night with my pick on the College Championship game.

 

 

And as always  - Remember to bet with your head and not over it.

Well this is a sad day as we bring the curtain down on another NFL season and now we get ready for the playoffs this weekend. As you know I keep separate stats for the regular season not only in the NFL but also the college regular season and the bowl season. My Giants did me in the last game by actually showing up to play the Redskins, but they won so I guess that I will live with that. As for the Buffalo Bills they are in the playoffs for the first time in forever, LOL. I am very happy to say that I ended up in the black with both my best bets and regular plays and that is saying something with the season that we just had. So below are my final stats for this 2017 NFL regular season. Thanks for following me and I hope I can win you some money in the playoffs. I would also like to give a shoutout to Sean Mesick who is the grandson of a very dear friend of mine. GO CUSE HOCKEY BEAT MICHIGAN !!

And as always - Remember to bet with your head and not over it. 

 

This is a very sad day indeed as it is the last week of  the regular NFL football season. Our football season comes and goes so fast it's hard to believe that in a little over a month we have to go thru withdrawl again. BUT it is what it is and I guess I will just have to suck it up. I must admit after first looking at the lines for this week's games I really can't find a lot that I like, but I will give it my best shot. So with great sadness here are my picks for this last week of the regular season in the NFL. 

 

 

BEST BETS

My FIRST BEST BET is on the WASHINGTON REDSKINS on the road giving 3 points to the New York Giants. I am so disappointed in my Giants this year and after more chaos with the Eli Apple situation this week I can't se how they could possibly be focused on this game. I think the Redskins win this game by double digits and it will bring to a close one of the worst seasons in Giants history. I am making Washington my FIRST BEST BET.

 

My NEXT BEST BET is on the MINNESOTA VIKINGS at home spotting the Chicago Bears 11 points. The Vikings clinch a first round bye with a win here and I think they will take control of this game from the get go and win this game and not have to wait till the afternoon games to back into a first round bye. The Vikes defense will either shutout the Bears or maybe allow a late td. The Vikings are my NEXT BEST BET.

 

My NEXT BEST BET is on the NEW ORLEANS SAINTS on the road giving 5 points to the Tampa Bay Bucs. I know this is a must win for the Saints and usually that is not a good scenario this time of the year, but something tells me that the Saints with Brees and his running backs as well as his receivers will pull this one off and get a home game in the playoffs.  The Saints are my NEXT BEST BET.

 

My LAST BEST BET is on the PITTSBURGH STEELERS at home giving 6 points to the Cleveland Browns. There is no doubt in my mind that the starters for the Steelers will not be playing this whole game or even part of it. However, I can't see their second stringers being the team that the Browns beat to get off the snide, so I like the Steelers here to cover this small number and leave Cleveland winless this year. The Steelers are my LAST BEST BET.
 
 
 
 
REGULAR PLAYS

As for regular plays I like the San Francisco 49ers on the road giving the Los Angeles Rams 4 points. Other regular plays I like are Indianapolis at home giving the Houston Texans 5 points. I also like the Jacksonville Jaguars on the road getting 3 points from the Tennessee Titans. I like the Los Angeles Chargers at home spotting the Oakland Raiders 7 points. And finally for my last pick in the regular season I like the Buffalo Bills on the road giving 2 points to the Miami Dolphins.

 

 

I will be back very late Sunday night with college bowl picks on the last 5 bowl games before the college championship game on January 8th. 

 

I hope everyone has a very safe and HAPPY NEW YEAR. 

 

And as always  - Remember to bet with your head and not over it.

Well sometimes it is better to be lucky as the Eagles covered the line with only 45 seconds left in a game that put most of to sleep. My poor Brownies can't get out of their own way and the Giants are just plain awful. So below are my stats for this week and for the entire season.

 

WEEK 16 STATS

BEST BETS              2-2 ATS and  3-1 SU

REGULAR PLAYS   1-4 ATS and 2-3 SU

 

2017 SEASON STATS

BEST BETS              30-23-3 ATS and 38-16-2 SU

REGULAR PLAYS  34-34-2 ATS and 40-29-1 SU

 

 

I will be back on Thursday night with more bowl picks for this week and back Saturday night with my picks for the last week in the NFL. 

 

 

And as always - Remember to bet with your head and not over it.
